Non-abelian Fundamental Groups and Iwasawa Theory, Paperback / softback Book

Non-abelian Fundamental Groups and Iwasawa Theory Paperback / softback

Edited by Professor John Coates, Minhyong Kim, Florian Pop, Mohamed Saidi, Peter Schneider

Part of the London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series series

Description

Number theory currently has at least three different perspectives on non-abelian phenomena: the Langlands programme, non-commutative Iwasawa theory and anabelian geometry.

In the second half of 2009, experts from each of these three areas gathered at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge to explain the latest advances in their research and to investigate possible avenues of future investigation and collaboration.

For those in attendance, the overwhelming impression was that number theory is going through a tumultuous period of theory-building and experimentation analogous to the late 19th century, when many different special reciprocity laws of abelian class field theory were formulated before knowledge of the Artin-Takagi theory.

Non-abelian Fundamental Groups and Iwasawa Theory presents the state of the art in theorems, conjectures and speculations that point the way towards a new synthesis, an as-yet-undiscovered unified theory of non-abelian arithmetic geometry.
